Working in partnership with leading cultural organisations, Project Art Works present a three year programme of art and conversation called Explorers. The programme is informed and led by neurodiverse communities, placing them at the heart of social, civic and cultural activity.

ABOUT Explorers Project

In 2016 Project Art Works were awarded an Ambition for Excellence grant by Arts Council England to deliver Explorers, a three year programme of art and conversation in partnership with cultural organisations across the UK and in Australia. Taking place against a backdrop of increased hardship and intolerance toward disabled people, the aim is to develop positive relationships between cultural organisations and the social care sector and to reposition people who have complex needs at the forefront of mainstream culture.

Over the next three years the work will include: awareness raising and encounter workshops, happenings, productions, commissions, exhibitions and seminars in collaboration with people who have complex needs and those who support them.

ABOUT Project Art Works

is an artist led organisation based in Hastings. We deliver workshops, build installations, make films, exhibit work, support studio practice, provide advocacy and raise awareness with, about and for people who have complex needs (intellectual disability and/or autism and/or behaviours described as challenging). We work in response to the lived experience of our stakeholders and to highlight the extraordinary contribution that people with complex support needs make to our lives.
